Senate Judiciary Committee chair Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, “bent over backwards” to accommodate the accuser of Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” the South Carolina Republican said the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, had 10 demands for a Thursday hearing, and the panel agreed to six of them.

“Chairman Grassley has bent over backwards to make this happen,” Graham said, adding: “There will be two witnesses, Dr. Ford and then Judge Kavanaugh, and we will hire our own counsel. [Ford and her lawyer] contest those two things.” 

“If they continue to contest those two things there won't be a hearing,” he continued. “If they really want to be heard they can be heard in a small room with a lot of security, limited press availability. The issue will be treated fairly but we are not going to turn the hearing over to her lawyers and we’ll see. I hope she comes, I will listen if she does. “

Graham repeatedly vowed the  hearing will be fair.

“She will be treated respectfully but she will be challenged,” Graham said. “Just like Judge Kavanaugh.”
